HYMN 79. L.M.
Eternal Life. (cont.)

  3 When rescued from th' impris'ning tomb,
A glory clothes our rising clay!
  4 Eternal life! O how refin'd
The joy! the triumph how divine!
When saints in body, and in mind,
Shall in the Saviour's image shine!
  5 Holy and heav'nly be that soul,
Where dwells an hope so high as this;
How should we long to reach the goal,
And seize the prize of endless bliss!

HYMN 80. P.M.
Time and Eternity.

  1 LO! on a narrow neck of land,
'Twixt two unbounded seas I stand,
   Yet how insensible!
A point of time, a moment's space,
Removes me to yon heav'nly place,
   Or shuts me up in hell.
  2 O God, my inmost soul convert,
And deeply on my thoughtful heart
   Eternal things impress;
Give me to feel their solemn weight
And save me ere it be too late;
   Wake me to righteousness.
  3 Before me place, in bright array,
The pomp of that tremendous day,
   When thou with clouds shalt come
To judge the nations at thy bar:
And tell me, Lord, shall I be there,
   To meet a joyful doom?
  4 Be this my one great bus'nesa here,
With holy trembling, holy fear,
   To make my calling sure!

HYMN 80. P.M.
Time and Eternity. (cont.)

  4 Thine utmost counsel to fulfil,
And suffer all thy righteous will,
   And to the end endure!
  5 Then Saviour, then my soul receive,
Transported from this vale, to live
   And reign with thee above;
Where faith is sweetly lost in sight,
And hope in full supreme delight
   And everlasting love.

HYMN 81. L.M.
The Seasons.

  1 THY providence, great God, we praise;
How good and great are all thy ways!
Thy bounty crowns our passing years,
And dissipates our anxious fears.
  2 Thy promise stands forever fast,
While sun, and moon, and earth shall last;
The laws of seasons shall endure,
Till time and stars are known no more.
  3 Summer and winter, cold and heat,
And night and day in order meet;
Seed-time and harvest, each succeed,
To prove thy love supply our need.
  4 When years are past, and seasons o'er,
We still shall prove thy cov'nant sure;
And in the shining realms of bliss,
Adore thy goodness and thy grace.

HYMN 82. C.M.
Summer - an Harvest song.

  1 TO praise the ever bounteous Lord,
   My soul, wake all thy pow'rs:
He calls, and at his voice come forth
   The smiling harvest-hours.
